no 50cc scooter here - only 500cc. And no way I'm taking that offroad - all the panels will break off!

But I was trying to convince my friend with the MP3 500 scooter to come ride - he's done most of that on it. With street tires!!! Pretty impressive actually.

Common qwiksilver, if you ride I'll ride!

Oh heck, I think I'll ride anyway.

Where is the meetup point? I don't see a 7-11 on Osborne, but one close on Lexicon Ave & Sunburst St (that's a weird place for a 7-11!), is that it?

Piaggio MP3 Scooter on Lynx Gulch

Here's my friend on his Piaggio MP3 500 Scooter and I on the XT doing Lynx Gulch.

Great ride! Didn't know an MP3 could do that...didn't know a Kymco could either. The best I've done is ride one of the Goodyear Zumas back to camp at TDS.

haha no-no, there was not Kymco doing that! That was the XT. My poor Scooter would blow up! It's that extra tire the MP3 has, and better ground clearance. I'd definitely get stuck on mine.

JAB. I did Cleghorn to hwy 138 to Silverwood dam. I then took the fire road to pinnacle stagging area. After that I explored around a bit. I then back tracked back to the 15fwy. Then slabbed it back to Pomona. Ben

Hand him $50 in ones and send him to the 7th Veil the night before, he'll still be asleep when you get back from the ride. (Body Shop burned down this morning so that one is out.)

Very nice. Someday (soon) I'd like to stage at Cleghorn and head into Big Bear on the ridge.
